Diary Blog, 6 June 2021, including the upcoming by-elections— Chesham and Amersham, and Batley and Spen

Belated Saturday quiz

I forgot about the i paper quiz yesterday. So here it is:

Only 5/10 this week, though I still beat John Rentoul (again); he only scored 4/10. I did not know the answers to questions 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10 (could not remember what LED —exactly— means, and I hit the post on the Battle of Bannockburn, knowing that it was Edward I’s successor but not knowing who the hell that was).

The reference there is to Paul Halloran, the candidate at Batley and Spen of the “Heavy Woollen District Independents” in the 2019 General Election: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batley_and_Spen_(UK_Parliament_constituency)#Elections_in_the_2020s. He scored 12.2%, a very creditable result. I mentioned the fact in my blog post of yesterday about the upcoming Batley and Spen by-election (1 July 2021): https://ianrobertmillard.org/2021/06/04/the-batley-and-spen-by-election-2021/.

It seems that the said Halloran has now joined the no-chance Reclaim Party set up by the actor Laurence Fox, who now stands for free speech (except, it seems, where Jews disapprove or are mentioned). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laurence_Fox.

Halloran, Fox, and Reclaim Party have issued a statement: https://mailchi.mp/a466726a0fd3/media-statement-the-reclaim-party-and-paul-halloran?e=d4fb63896d.

https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/paul-halloran-wont-standing-batley-20751008

It is clear that Reclaim Party will never amount to anything. As far as the Batley and Spen by-election in July is concerned, the stand-aside will obviously help the Conservative candidate, but what is unknown is by how many votes. Halloran received 12.2% of the vote in 2019, true, but Fox, in the recent London Mayoral Election, only 1.9%.

I suppose that it might be surmised that Halloran, had he stood at Batley, might have garnered 5% of the by-election vote, possibly 10%, and maybe even 15%+, but the fact is that that is pure speculation. We do not know.

What we do know is that the above news is probably a blow for Labour. A few percent might decide this contest.

Chesham and Amersham by-election 2021

The Chesham and Amersham by-election is set down for 17 June 2021. It has been occasioned by the death of the sitting member, Cheryl Gillan [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan].

I usually abide by the maxim de mortuis nihil nisi bonum (“[say] nothing but good of the [recent] dead”) but the fact is that the recently-deceased MP was little better than a persistent and outright thief [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheryl_Gillan#Expenses] who defrauded the taxpayer out of far more than was explicitly exposed during the 2009 expenses scandal.

As to the constituency, this is rock-solid Conservative Party territory, situated at the suburban and semi-rural Northern joint termini of the Metropolitan Line.

Since the seat was created in 1974, the Conservatives have held it, at first with Ian Gilmour [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Gilmour,_Baron_Gilmour_of_Craigmillar] and then with Cheryl Gillan, who “inherited” the seat in 1992.

The lowest ebb of Conservative Party fortunes at Chesham and Amersham was 1997, but even in that year of “Labour landslide” the Conservative vote held up at 50.4%. The high-water mark was the 1992 General Election (63.3%). Even the expenses scandal did not dent Cheryl Gillan’s vote (60.4% in 2010).

Second place in elections at Chesham and Amersham has usually gone to the Liberal Democrats, but UKIP (2015, 13.7%) and Labour (2017, 20.6%) have also featured.

The LibDem vote-share fell to only 9% (and a fourth-place) in the debacle of 2015, but recovered to 13% in 2017, and to 26.3% in 2019.

As for Labour, its low point was 2010 (5.6%), and its high point 2017 (20.6%).

Eight candidates contest the by-election, the other five being Green Party, Reform Party UK, Freedom Alliance, Breakthrough Party, and Rejoin EU.

Green Party got 5.5% at Chesham and Amersham in 2019.

Reform Party UK is the rump of Brexit Party, and scored 1% in the most recent London Assembly elections.

Rejoin EU managed to get a vote of 1.1% in the 2021 London Mayoral election. Its by-election candidate is Brendan Donnelly [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brendan_Donnelly_(politician)], a one-time employee at the Foreign Office, who became a Conservative Party MEP in 1994, then left the Conservative Party, stood again in 1999 under the banner of the short-lived “Pro-Euro Conservative Party” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro-Euro_Conservative_Party], failed to be re-elected, and thereafter became a serial and unsuccessful pro-EU election candidate under several flags.

Freedom Alliance is a reaction to the toytown police state created by the 2020 Coronavirus events, and is based in Huddersfield [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/], though its Chesham and Amersham by-election candidate is a former Green Party councillor who lives in High Wycombe [https://freedomalliance.co.uk/england-candidates/].

As for Breakthrough Party, it describes itself as “a democratic socialist party, led by the younger generations...” [https://breakthroughparty.org.uk/]; https://www.thecanary.co/feature/2021/04/18/a-new-political-party-wants-a-breakthrough-for-young-people/. Its by-election candidate is Carla Gregory, aged 31, a charity worker: https://www.nationalworld.com/news/politics/chesham-and-amersham-by-election-mum-of-two-standing-for-new-breakthrough-party-to-be-voice-of-unheard-3241528.

The main interest in the by-election will be that of seeing how low Labour will sink.

Well, Hitchens is sometimes worth noting, but I have to say that when I had a Twitter account (a pack of Jew-Zionists had me expelled in 2018), Hitchens blocked me mainly if not entirely because he saw that I knew more than him. My later assessment of him: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/05/19/peter-hitchens-and-his-views/.

Not new, of course. I wrote the following blog post over two years ago, and about a Daily Telegraph article itself written in 2012: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/.

NWO. ZOG. The Great Reset. It’s happening right in front of our eyes, yet the majority, perhaps the vast majority, are unaware, or think it is just something to do with a virus that has killed about one in a thousand British people (and even fewer worldwide)…

Fabricant, of course, is a Jew, and was at one time an employee or agent of SIS.

British foreign aid cuts

There is a case for foreign aid. It rests, in its purest form, on charity or compassion, just like social welfare, free medical care etc in the UK domestic context. In less obviously pure form, foreign aid can be regarded as an incident of “soft power” and diplomacy.

Having said that, much foreign aid is misapplied, wasted, or stolen. I could give examples from my own overseas experience.

On BBC TV News, I saw today some woman talking (from her own rather comfortable-looking home) about the recent decision to further cut foreign aid. She was one of the directors of the long-established charity, Save the Children, which —subject to correction— I think was founded in or at the end of the First World War.

Some reading this may recall that, after the Jo Cox assassination in 2016, it came to light that the husband of that MP, the (I always thought, seeing him on TV etc) rather thuggish Brendan Cox, was exposed as a sex pest and quasi-rapist. Well, what interested me more was the fact that (if I recall aright), as something like third in command of Save the Children, Brendan Cox was being paid something like £200,000 pa. Not bad for someone with a very underwhelming academic and other background. Worse, the actual head of Save the Children was getting over £300,000 (in fact, from memory, it was nearly £400,000).

Not that I think that the head of a large organization, even a charitable one, should not be paid decently or even well, bearing in mind the skills required and responsibility held, but all the same it sits unpleasantly to see people donating pennies, or hard-scrabbled pounds, while the fat cats at the top of the tree get hundreds of thousands of pounds (and expenses) every year.

The world of international aid charities is a rotten borough. I once met a woman who was getting very well paid indeed (the equivalent of maybe £100,000 a year in today’s money), for about 2-3 days a week working for DFID as a “consultant”; she had some academic job as well. She told me that she had even been offered more money, about double, working for the UN Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] in Rome. Her job title? [would be] “expert in food poverty”!

There’s something unclean about all that. Carpetbagging hypocrisy.

Alison Chabloz

The latest news (as yet unconfirmed) about the persecuted satirist and singer is that her appeal against conviction and sentence will take place on 13 August 2021. As said, this is as yet unconfirmed. The appeal had been set down for the two days of 3-4 June 2021, but was adjourned at the request of the Crown. It may be that the appeal will now be more narrowly focussed, i.e. focussed on strictly legal arguments, and that that is why it seems now to be set down for only one day.

In the past, little happened in the courts in August, but that was then.

Diary Blog, 23 April 2021

Well, so today is St. George’s Day. I rarely see the TV news now, so do not know whether the fact was reported on at all. It’s connected with England and the English by historical convention, so it will probably only be reported en passant, and/or probably used as an excuse to say that any alien flotsam and jetsam living here are “really” just as “English” as you and me…

Alison Chabloz

As I relayed via this blog a couple of days ago, the word from usually-reliable sources is that Alison will be released early, on electronic tag, next Wednesday. Not 100% certain, but pretty certain. If so, she will have served exactly 4 weeks out of the 18 weeks headline sentence. About 22% of the full sentence.

It could be worse, though only repressive societies lock up satirists and commentators, of course. The BBC/msm-subsidized Jew and other comedians, who mock the English and other British people constantly, never face such censure. Well, not yet, anyway. Perhaps their time will come.

There seems to be nothing new to report about Alison’s situation. I have already (see previous days’ blogs) relayed the news that she has received hundreds of letters, cards and books from all over the world, and has managed to keep in contact with people via telephone, her prison money account having apparently been topped-up by generous donors.

The most amusing news, arguably (apart from the fact that the “CAA” put out 5 years of conspiratorial plotting in order that Alison should spend only a few weeks in a not-entirely uncomfortable confinement) is that Alison has been able to sing her songs to an enthusiastic audience of prisoners (and staff?), some of whom apparently “sang along” at times!

A victory for Alison Chabloz “on points”, as the boxing people say…

In other words, in the British context, a British and especially English form of social nationalism.

In the past, meaning before the 1990s, the UK Labour Party was “social” though not very “national”; the Conservative Party was at least semi-“national” but not very “social”. Blair destroyed most of the socialism and even social-democracy in Labour, while the Conservative Party was (like Labour, in fact) taken over by Jews and Jewish money, and threw away its “national” credentials. Both “main parties” became basically non-national and non-social. That remains the case today. Both parties are mere facades, behind which lurk Jewish-Zionism, globalist finance-capitalism, and the agenda of the international conspiracy (or “consensus”, if you prefer): the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan, the New World Order, Zionist Occupation Government(s). In a word, “White Genocide”.

Corbyn and those around him tried to resurrect the dead corpse of “social” Labour, which had been killed off in the 1990s by the superficially-talented puppet of the NWO/ZOG conspiracy, Blair (cf. Macron in France).

Corbyn, those around him, many rank and file Labourites as well, thought that you can be “anti-Israel”, yet pay lip-service to the “holocaust” faked history and so on. In other words, they thought that you can be anti-Jewish lobby (to put it that way; “anti-Zionist lobby”, perhaps more accurately) if said Jews are in Israel/Palestine, yet pro-Jew if the Jews in question are in the USA, UK, or France!

The Jewish lobby in the UK, and internationally, killed off Corbyn-Labour after several years:

Now the headless chickens of the Labour rank and file either try to depose Keir Starmer, the puppet leader put in by the Jewish lobby, or retreat to comfort zones such as Twitter.

The Zionists don’t care whether or not Labour ever wins a General Election again. Most of them vote low-tax (supposedly) “Conservative” anyway. They are in the position of a punter who backs both the first and second favourites in a race with only two likely outcomes, and where the other runners have effectively no chance. The fix is in. One of those two horses will win, but whichever one wins, the Jewish-Zionist punter has won. The colour of the winning jockey’s silks is of no real matter.

All the same, there could be an upswell of popular support for a new social-national party, if one existed, if it were credible, and if it had a leader destined to arise to supreme power. Also, if circumstances or Fate were favourable…

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/resentful-mum-left-open-bottle-23968641

A suspended sentence! This was, and should have been charged as, attempted murder.

Say something that (allegedly…) “offends” a Jew (or, eg, sing a song about “holocaust” fakery) and you may end up in prison in the Britain of 2021, but admit to trying to poison your own 2-y-o child, and to causing 80 injuries to him, and it’s a suspended sentence…Sick.

Those idiots probably think that they have accomplished something. I bet that the one who pleaded guilty felt sick as the rest were acquitted. As for the jury, I do not know whether they are stupid, feeble-minded, or directly subversive. They should be ashamed of themselves.

TV weather girl, in the open air, at some place in the Yorkshire countryside, with a gale blowing, with heavy rain falling, and she is wearing a facemask muzzle! This is pure propaganda.

We have to put an end to all this nonsense.

In wars of existential survival, the enemy have only won when the last round has been fired and, in our present world, when no European person is left standing.

Naturally, the designation, “Middle Britain”, or as more often seen, “Middle England”, is indefinite. It is harder to say what it includes than to say what it excludes: the very wealthy, what passes for “the aristocracy”, the vast mass of poorly-paid people, the unemployed etc. I suppose, the ethnic minorities too.

A more fruitful enquiry is to ask what kind of movement might capture at least a plurality of hearts and minds.

The present System has political parties which represent anything but “Middle England” (or most British people generally).

The Labour Party is now, in broad-brush terms, really just the party of the blacks and browns, and of the public service sector, particularly the NHS.

The Conservative Party is really the party of the uber-wealthy, both British and exotic, though for tactical reasons having to chuck crumbs to “Middle England” and the rest.

As for the LibDems, they are really a washed-up remnant now, representing nothing much beyond a protest having to do with anything from anti-Brexit to rubbish collection. I imagine that, were he still around, Jo Grimond would have his head in his hands! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo_Grimond (incidentally, his memoirs are well worth reading).

All System parties are pervaded by the Jewish-Zionist element; that is particularly true of the now-ruling Conservative Party. The present Cabinet is entirely composed of members of Conservative Friends of Israel. Several are actually Jewish or part-Jewish, and several of the rest are also non-European, mainly Indian.

Britain needs a new movement, partly though not only to be expressed through a political party.

Prepping

In the USA, with its vast areas of wilderness and other open land, “prepping” has become a popular topic over past decades: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivalism.

The term “prepping” is wide in its ambit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivalism#Outline_of_scenarios_and_outlooks.

In previous years, I blogged a number of times about “prepping” as applied to our more constricted European or UK environment:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/new-communities-in-england-and-wales-for-social-nationalists/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/17/how-would-the-safe-zone-become-a-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/why-should-people-relocate-to-the-safe-zone-of-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/10/getting-real-about-repatriation-creation-of-the-british-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/03/04/the-way-forward-for-social-nationalism-in-the-uk/amp/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/02/04/white-flight-in-a-small-country/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/09/17/europe-will-soon-be-in-chaos-we-can-create-a-new-civilization-from-that/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/07/05/the-pressing-need-for-safe-zones-in-the-uk-and-across-europe/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/post-collapse-survival-preservation-of-civilization-and-culture/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/12/20/from-secure-base-to-national-power/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/24/concentration-of-resident-supporters-in-the-germinal-ethnostate/https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2016/11/10/fortress-centres-of-culture-and-science/.

Thoughts about wider issues but connected to the above are found here: https://ianrobertmillard.org/2019/01/26/the-tide-is-coming-in-reflections-on-the-possible-end-of-our-present-civilization-and-what-might-follow/.

On the individual level, and in the UK, what can the individual do, as he or she contemplates the encroaching police state, the massive output of System propaganda (particularly around race-mixing and, now, the “panicdemic”) and other signs that an alien society is being prepared? We have no vast wilderness areas into which to go, unlike preppers in the USA, Canada and elsewhere.

The first thing is to cut as many ties to the System as possible. To cut all is impossible for most UK people, but one can reduce connection to a minimum.

To be an employee on a salary is not good. It puts you in the power of a employer and, in general, System power-hubs: tax authorities etc.

To be a member of a regulated profession, even if self-employed, is also not so good. You are tied-in to a Zionist-control scenario these days.

The best scenario, short of being fortunate enough to already have a sizeable capital (whether through one’s own activity, through inheritance, or via something such as a large Lottery win), is to be self-employed in such a manner as to be free of most System regulation (especially re. one’s views).

What if dependent on small State-provided or other income, such as a pension, or DWP benefits? No difference. Leave the major cities and towns. Relocate, and try to link with persons of similar mind and ideology.

The practical trades are, as Nick Griffin has opined, optimal for cutting System ties: car repair, self-employed building or repair, self-employed garden work, operation of a cafe or restaurant (“virus” restrictions permitting), hair-cutting, smallholding and farming. There are numerous other possibilities. You get the idea, anyway. Most such trades are also portable, able to move location easily enough.

If possible, move away from the large cities, which are doomed. UK people cannot, most of them, relocate to anything akin to “wilderness” or remote countryside, but can get away from places such as London.

Relocate to small towns and villages or, if you can afford it, to country houses, country estates, farms, or smallholdings, even if only a house with a few acres on which you can grow fruits, vegetables, and nut trees. Bealtaine Cottage (Ireland) and other similar experiments are very interesting: https://twitter.com/PermaGoddess; https://bealtainecottage.com/

It is possible to feed one person, on a vegetarian basis, on a fraction of an acre, though a more realistic acreage is about 1 acre or so. The less veggie-oriented, the more land is required, though chickens can produce about 1 egg every 2 days, and under existing DEFRA rules, persons in the country can keep 20 chickens without having to register with DEFRA.

Try to be off-grid re. electricity and other energy required: heat exchange technology, solar panels (one kind produces warm/hot water, the other produces electricity); if environmental factors etc are in favour, small wind turbines, and hydropower (micro or even pico); also, obviously, wood-burning stoves.

The Internet is key, while it exists. Another good idea, for communication linkage in any future disaster scenario, would be ham radio.

The American Mormons, I believe, try to stockpile up to 2 years’ supplies of basic items. A good idea. Some dried foods (eg white rice), if kept really dry, can be OK for 20 years. Canned goods are safe for years, even decades, though the quality in terms of taste etc may deteriorate after the Best Before date shown on the tin. At any rate, good for years.

Other items can also be stockpiled. We have just seen, in 2020, how quickly loo-paper, soap etc can disappear from sale.

The above need not mean bulk-buying. Just buy a few extra items every time you shop.

Other useful items? For me, the list would include such as candles, tea-lights; handcranked lights, torches [Am. flashlights], and radios; also, solar-powered outside lights. Garden/horticultural tools. Home-bottling and canning supplies. Seeds. Firelighters. Matches. Cigarette lighters (for lighting fires).Just a few of the possibilities.

In his interesting memoirs, Drink and Ink, the writer Dennis Wheatley [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Wheatley] says that, in his late-1930s newspaper column, he recommended to readers that they stock up on tinned food. He did the same. When rationing was introduced in 1940 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Second_World_War_1939%E2%80%931945], he was thus able to soldier on easier than those not so prepared. Canning technology has improved immeasurably since those days.

For those with children, I would urge homeschooling. Contrary to what many believe, this is fully-lawful: https://www.gov.uk/home-education; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeschooling

For me, the aim of the above would not be, merely, for isolated individuals and families to survive, but for them to form a web of survival, the kernel of which might become a new society.

Diary Blog, 28 November 2020, including ideas around political sclerosis

Philip Green

The day starts with the BBC Radio 4 news report, which says that the billionaire Jew merchant, Philip Green, “has been urged to use his family money to help the employees” of the Arcadia Group which Green and his family looted in recent years! It’s too late or too early for April Fool jokes.

The sclerosis of UK politics

It is surely clear that the poliical system in the UK is sclerotic. The needs of the people are not addressed by it; neither are the wishes of the voters, who have a pathetic non-choice. More below.

Labour, coalition ideas, Clive Lewis (and “Femi Sorry”)

I have blogged, en passant, in the past about “Femi Sorry” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femi_Oluwole], a UK-born Nigerian whose parents are both NHS medics.

Family income presumably in the hundreds of thousands. Educated at a fee-paying school. Supposedly worked at several (unnamed) NGOs for about 3 years in toto (mostly, if not entirely, paid or unpaid internships, the latter something only the offspring of the affluent can do).

In fact, while his Wikipedia entry claims that he “left his job to campaign against Brexit, moving back into his parents’ loft“, the “job” was yet another internship (in Vienna), and he was only in the “job” for about 8-9 months: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/politics/lets-take-back-control-of-our-futures-young-campaigner-femi-oluwoles-plan-to-overturn-brexit-a3768721.html?fallback=true

“Femi” and a few other young people are said to have started a pro-EU anti-Brexit campaign group, Our Future Our Choice [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Future_Our_Choice], which has no website, but still has a Twitter account [https://twitter.com/OFOCbrexit] which has however posted only twice since 2019.

So did “Our Future Our Choice”, this little campaign group run by a few young people, operate out of that Solihull attic, or from a tiny office in some poor part of Birmingham or London? Well, no. It had an office in Millbank Tower [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millbank_Tower], one of the most expensive office addresses in London. “Labour ran its 1997 General Election campaign from these offices; after the election, the party vacated its headquarters at John Smith HouseWalworth Road SE17, to move to Millbank. Five years later, however, the £1 million per annum rent forced the party to vacate the tower.” [Wikipedia]

Rent of a million a year? Well...”The United Nations also had offices in the tower, but moved out in June 2003, also citing high rents.” [Wikipedia].

Millbank Tower, Westminster, London, 24Apr04.jpg
[Millbank Tower]

Yet “Our Future Our Choice” had an office there. So who paid? The EU, via a couple of cut-outs.

Incidentally, “The tower has been owned by David and Simon Reuben since 2002” [Wikipedia].

Well, “Our Future Our Choice” is now defunct, but “Femi” has tried to use his publicity from 2019 to fuel a political and msm career for himself. I recall seeing him once recently on the late-night Sky News talking shop (the name of which escapes me). None other than Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s old spinmeister, has commended him by tweet.

Femi’s msm career has hardly rocketed, but he is seen or heard occasionally on radio or TV. I suppose that he scrapes a easy modest living out of it. Hard to say. He seems to want to become an MP, but I doubt that that will work out, even in today’s risibly-poor political milieu.

An example of the “Great Replacement”?

Below, an example of the pathetically-poor thinking skills of “Femi Sorry”…

Is there anything in the idea of a coalition of “anti-Tory” parties? Well, I blogged in the past about how Labour’s only hope in 2019 would have been to get a plurality of MPs at the General Election, and then to have cobbled together a coalition with the SNP and others.

Never happened, because Nigel Farage stabbed his own Brexit Party in the back and betrayed his own candidates, standing them down so that the Conservative Party had a free run in almost all constituencies. That alone gave the Conservative Party its present 80-seat majority. In return, we see Farage still given credence by the msm (he even has his own radio show). He may also have received a multi-million bung offshore (though I concede that I have no evidence of that, just a strong suspicion).

If the Labour Party were able to treat with the SNP at the next General Election, then what? What would the SNP want? Nothing less than a binding Independence referendum, or even a pledge of Independence outright.

If Scotland became “independent”, though, the Labour Party at Westminster would lose, on present showing, its only Scottish Labour MP, and also the support of 47 SNP MPs, as well as that of the 4 Scottish LibDem MPs.

That would leave the speculated grand “anti-Tory” coalition with 226 Labour and Labour Co-op MPs, 7 LibDems, 3 Plaid Cymru, 2 Northern Irish SDLP, 1 Northern Irish Alliance MP, and Caroline Lucas, the “solitary Green”. 240 MPs altogether, even with all of those parties on board.

As against that, again on present showing, the Conservative Party would have 358 MPs (the present complement of 364 minus the 6 Scottish Conservatives).

Result? A Conservative Party majority of 118.

It can be seen that the “anti-Tory” grand coalition mooted is a house built on sand.

The political system is sclerotic. The public in England itself has a “choice” between “two main parties” which are now (Corbyn having been booted out) again very similar. We see that vis a vis the “panicdemic”. The official Opposition is not only not opposing, but actually saving the Government’s bacon, as seems likely next week, in the “Coronavirus” debate. The only real opposition, as I predicted, is now coming from Conservative Party MPs.

Proportional Representation is necessary in the UK, but unlikely at present. Even that, though, will not save Labour. Once FPTP is gone, the System parties lose a degree of “credibility” that they now have over upstart parties.

…and then, just as the people were in despair at ever escaping from “the virus” (i.e. from government “measures”, “rules” etc), there appeared a white knight on the horizon— the vaccine(s). Moreover, vaccines developed in a fraction of the usual time. Am I wrong in being just a little suspicious? It just has something of the “Kool Aid” time about it…[in fact, the lethal drink at Jonestown was a different but similar soft drink, Flavor Aid: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown].

Not that I believe that the vaccines are actually going to kill everyone. Certainly not in the short term. There may, however, be unexpected aspects which will only become known to people generally in the future.

Re. that tweeter, Jack Buckby (above), I had only vaguely heard the name. He has recently penned this, which I have not yet read but might be worth reading: https://fcpp.org/wp-content/uploads/FC-PS232_ExtremistOpp_SP2820_F3.pdf. This is what Wikipedia says about him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Buckby.

My very provisional assessment of this Buckby is that he seems to be being funded by a North American “think tank”, possibly “libertarian”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frontier_Centre_for_Public_Policy. He is now “anti-racist”, which for me is a negative, looking at the world today. I have to say, also, that anyone who thought that Anne Marie Waters had anything interesting to offer politically, must be lacking in judgment.

A particularly heartbreaking and heartless example of the “virus” madness that has swept the country for most of 2020.

The “British” Government has largely abandoned “lawful, peaceful means”, so why should we be restricted to them??

Once again, I did better than John Rentoul. He got 3/10 in this week’s (harder than usual?) quiz. My score was 5/10, or 4/10 if my answer to question 8 was insufficiently precise. I did not know the answers to questions 1, 2, 6, 7, 9.

Unemployed “antifa” cheerleader, and perennial grifter, Mike Stuchbery, now resident in Stuttgart, vicariously threatens young people in the UK with persecution for their political views. Whatever did happen to the nearly £12,000 that he and “Roanna @antifashwitch” raised from 700 mugs via GoFundMe so that, supposedly, Stuchbery could sue Tommy Robinson?

A year or so on, and nothing has happened.

I only know what I see online about it all, but think that the police fraud people ought to take a look at all that. I am not convinced that Stuchbery and “Roanna @antifashwitch” ever intended to use the monies to fund a legal action.

I agree with Nick Griffin. It is usually pointless to threaten…

MPs who lose their seats at Westminster are usually found well-paid berths elsewhere, especially if the MPs in question are tied up with the Jewish lobby. Mere loss of a seat is inadequate.

I am not so sure that Boris-idiot ever worries (or cares) about whether he is in the right.

Well worth reading: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-8715881/DOMINIC-SANDBROOK-Britain-feet.html

Wouldn’t it be better to focus on shielding the vulnerable, instead of shackling the entire population? And above all, the six-million-dollar question: is this insistent nannystatism really the only way? 

A few weeks ago I wrote in these pages about my recent visit to Sweden. Right from the start, the Swedes had no lockdown, no masks and no curfews. When I visited, I found the restaurants and bars packed

The shops were a little quieter than usual, but still busy enough. Life, in other words, was going on. Mere anecdotal evidence, some people said. And it’s true that back in the spring, the Swedes made a complete mess of shielding their care homes, which drove up their fatality rates

Even so, just look at the facts. Without imposing sweeping restrictions, and by trusting people to behave responsibly, the Swedes have avoided a second surge. Their figures for Covid deaths in the last three days were 2, 1 and 4 respectively.”

They’ve also avoided the worst of the economic damage. According to figures released this week, the Swedes actually made a £4bn budget surplus last month. By contrast, our most recently monthly figure was a deficit of £27bn.”[Dominic Sandbrook, Daily Mail]

Now it appears that Boris-idiot is intending to spend £100 BILLION or more on useless testing. This is going beyond mere incompetence. It is getting to the point where Boris-idiot and the Cabinet of Clowns can be regarded collectively (with the “scientific advisers, as well) as an existential danger to the British people. They should be put down, pro bono publico, starting with Boris-idiot.

This stupid and interfering government is also intending to create a force of busybody “marshals”: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8715109/Social-media-users-mock-Boris-Johnsons-army-Covid-marshals.html.

I sincerely hope that those busybodies get a good kicking.

Ha ha! Was just reading some of the Daily Mail readers’ comments, and I predict that the new toothless Handmaid’s Tale militia busybodies will face resistance. One reader said that they might end up upended in a wheelie bin! That, in turn reminded me of a incident from the mid-1980s.

When one of the Soviet ballet or dance ensembles visited the UK in the 1980s (I forget which one it was, out of several tours with which I had peripheral contact at the time via people I knew), the large group visited a number of Northern cities.

One day, a few of the main dancers were in, I think, Liverpool, along with their interpreter and their “Ministry of Culture” (KGB) minder. At one point, local “youths” decided to push over some wheelie bins and dustbins. Observing this, the KGB man asked an English person also there, “may I pliss do something about zis?” and, with that, approached the main youth, who was initially truculent until lifted up bodily and smashed into some more bins, with much clattering. End of the nuisance…

These new “marshals” remind me of the “PCSO” “police” (who are not actually police but sort-of look like them, and get paid about half as much). When the Jewish pack were trying to get me into trouble one way or the other, several years ago (in fact, I think that this particular incident happened in 2014 or 2015), the police were pressed into service, and a PCSO actually appeared at my now-humble home. A blonde woman from somewhere like Yorkshire transplanted to Hampshire, she had clearly not only failed to become a real policewoman but also dropped out of the Charm School.

The woman claimed that the Metropolitan Police wanted to speak to me and that my telephone number was required. I gave it to her. She wrote it down. I was told that the Metropolitan Police officer would be calling me at a certain time late that afternoon. In fact, there was no call.

The PCSO waste of space reappeared the following day, furious that I had (deliberately, she alleged!) “given her the wrong number” (I had not), and she said that if necessary she would call for a (real) police officer to come. I reiterated that she had been given the right number. I repeated it. The thick bitch checked. She had written down two repeated digits, but the right number had three repeated digits. The charmless bitch had written down the number wrongly but preferred to pretend that I had deliberately misled her.

The “Metropolitan Police officer” never did call me. There was a kind of ending to the story, though. I saw the aforesaid bitch in Waitrose some weeks later, buying some kind of “free-from” health food snack bars. I stood there until she turned around and saw me. She jumped! Ha ha! She maybe thought that I was about to assault her or worse. Let’s hope so…

I feigned amiability and said hello. She replied, dully. The woman actually then had the effrontery to ask me whether “anything happened” in relation to her visit to me. I thus had the opportunity to reply, “No; never heard anything. I expect that the police must have made a mistake.” Touché…

I did see the bitch once more, again some weeks later, after hours of heavy rain had just stopped. She was “walking the beat” down a side-road in the nearby town. Right next to her was a large and deep puddle, about 20 feet long. I had an unholy desire to drive and indeed roar past her, depositing a tsunami of rainwater all over her, but good sense prevailed (sadly…but she would either have recognized me or got my number). I took another way around.

In the following months, the Hampshire Police made most if not all of the PCSOs in my part of the county redundant for costs reasons, so she was probably chucked onto the dole. I hope that she was. Power-mad bitches like that should not be irritating and harassing members of the public and trying to intimidate them. Maybe she will apply to become one of Boris-idiot’s “Covid marshals”. If so, I hope that I see her patrolling after another cloudburst. I am less patient these days.

Not only Peter Hitchens! He, however, has a platform on the msm.

Musical interlude

David Vance

I never had much time for David Vance, the minor politico from Northern Ireland, who has now been “suspended” from Twitter (probably expelled in reality, like me, Katie Hopkins and thousands of others).

Vance is an unpleasant man who was rude to me on at least two occasions. Probably a minor freemason, certainly pro-Israel and pro-Jewish lobby. A typical Northern Irish/Scottish “kosher nationalist” or Unionist, in short.

These “kosher nationalists” never seem to see that, no matter how much they proclaim their misguided devotion to Jewry and Israel, the Jewish element hates them anyway, as do those dupes of the Jews known as “antifa” (who often, and risibly, tend to be both pro-Jew and anti-Israel!).

Having said that, Vance’s expulsion is the latest attack on free speech on Twitter.

The funny thing is that the anti-free speech types on Twitter (Jews, “antifa” etc) fail to see that their tweeting accomplishes nothing in the real socio-political world. Not only are tweets ephemeral but people tweet in little bubbles or, as often said, “echo-chambers”. I see the same people tweeting pretty much the same things to each other that I have seen for a decade.

I repost tweets on my blog because it is a quick way of making points or taking the pulse, but tweets have no real weight, politically.

The tweet below by one “Dave Monk” (must be a misprint: that is “Dave Spart”, nicht wahr?) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recurring_themes_and_in-jokes_in_Private_Eye] is fairly typical. Everyone not of his exact viewpoint must be “deplatformed” if not actually prosecuted or executed.

That “@TheRealGrumpDad” idiot, above, like many of the same sort, fails to see that his formula “you have free speech but not freedom from the consequences of that speech” could be said of, say, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Mao’s China etc. Yes, you can say whatever you like, but say the wrong thing and there will be “consequences” (imprisonment, even execution).

“GrumpDad” is not alone in his defective reasoning. A law lecturer from East Anglia, one Paul Bernal (a descendant of the part-Jew Marxist scientist J.D. Bernal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._D._Bernal), often tweets in similar vein. Pathetic.

Those who rub their hands in glee as dissenting voices are censored or expelled from, eg, Twitter, seem not to realize that, if all peaceful means are taken away, people will turn to less peaceful means. In other words, there are “consequences” to actions as well.

Brexit

As I have said previously, I favour exit from the EU and have done so for a long time, well over a decade, but the fact is that several prime ministers of the UK have messed it up. That applies especially to Theresa May and Boris-idiot.

I may have been mistaken on one point: I thought that the UK would in reality stay under the EU’s rule even if the UK left the EU formally. Some kind of “agreement”, so little change on the ground (akin to the past year). To my surprise, it now seems that the UK might really leave, and under conditions of chaos and confusion. We read of government contingency plans involving the use of troops to contain urban discontent if there are shortages of medicine and even food.

In the immortal words of that little moneygrubbing MP, Johnny Mercer, this is shaping up to be be a complete “shitshow”.

Add to the above Brexit confusion the “virus” absurdities of this government, the continuing migration-invasion, and the general economic slide (including the slide in confidence and currency) and you have the basic conditions for a situation in a year or two which is, in principle, very favourable for social nationalism.

Asset-buying

The very wealthy are buying assets. Confidence in the pound sterling is waning. Gold continues to appreciate in value, and I have noticed that, compared to 10 or even 5 years ago, large estates are not readily available now for any money. For example, Rightmove had numerous large Scottish estates for sale at any one moment during the years 2010-2018 or 2019, but now there are few. Any that come onto the market go quickly.

The same is true of England. Valuable real estate is being bought up now, as a hedge. For example, one place, a house with 40 acres and a sea view, and only a mile from my own humble home, has just sold for £8.5 million, having been up for sale for weeks only. Another, about 5 miles away, seems to have sold for about £6 million.

These otherwise unremarkable incidents are all signs of a lack of confidence in both cash and equities.

Meanwhile, we are in the hands of people whose incompetence is boundless, led by a total idiot who has somehow been elevated to the position and rank of a prime minister, but who is incapable of fulfilling that role with even modest competence.

Boris-idiot is now planning to spend £100 BILLION (!) on entirely useless daily or weekly testing of the entire population! For a disease or condition which is now killing only 1 person out of thousand upon thousand of the population! It is madness. As said before, is this just total incompetence, or is it a form of conspiracy and treason?

Facemasks

The UK Government itself, despite making the wearing of masks compulsory on public transport, admits that the wearing of such masks has minimal effect on the Coronavirus situation generally, and in fact no more than minimal effect in terms of protecting the wearer or anyone else.

So why make the wearing of “face coverings” (which can be something as loose as a college scarf!) compulsory? Because this incompetent government is driven entirely by public relations and opinion polls. The plebs have been scared out of their skins by months of governmental and mass media propaganda. As a result, you see frightened rabbits wearing masks in Waitrose, carefully trying to stay the (again mandated for no reason— no scientific evidence backs it) “2 metres social distancing” from other shoppers.

The average age of death from Covid-19 in the UK is around 82, and most of those people have comorbidities. I said to our managers that we had to test people and could not just be throwing them into nursing homes. But that is what they did. Homes were virtually ordered to take elderly patients. We had one nursing home that ended up with 12 deaths in a week.”

The health service treated elderly, vulnerable people as figures on a piece of paper. The lack of any brain power being applied to this was amazing. They had one objective – to clear the hospitals – and everything else was subordinate to that. Of course, they will never say this is what happened. But that is precisely what did happen.”

We are probably all going to get Covid-19 and we are all going to keep getting it. The only purpose of lockdown was to protect the health service from being overwhelmed, which did not happen. The end result is that lockdown was a waste of time. It cannot be continued forever.”

[Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, in Spiked magazine]

If you were a German camp commandant somewhere like Belsen at the end of the war, and your inmates died of disease and malnutrition because Allied bombing etc had cut off supplies of food and medicine, you got hanged when the British or Americans arrived, but if you are an NHS adminstrator, and you deliberately send elderly and sick people somewhere, knowing that they will die as a result, or not caring (and you were “following orders” from superiors and Government), you are not hanged. People think that you are wonderful. They even stand outside their houses and clap like idiots on command to thank you. Mad world.

How very true that is. A Cabinet headed by Boris-idiot, who is part-Jew, part-Turk, part-GodKnowsWhat, born in New York City, brought up largely in the USA and Belgium, descendant of generations of con-men.

Then there is the rest of the Cabinet, a scrapheap of Jews, Indians, and at least one woman (and a stupid woman at that) who became an MP on her back (if such is the bon mot); then we have an idiot (Williamson) who, as Defence Secretary, played with his pet spider while “threatening” China with a gunboat in the South China Sea (China has 850 large naval ships…), and so on. [Williamson is now Education Secretary, because even Boris-idiot saw that Williamson’s level of knowledge about military and naval affairs, and strategy, is limited to Airfix model soldiers, or playing Risk].

I have been critical of previous UK Cabinets and governments, but this one is unsurpassed. Jesus H. Christ!

This government is incompetent but, more than that, it is —like its predecessors— a tool of the New World Order conspiracy/consensus and the Jew Zionist occupation. ZOG/NWO.

I think, subject to correction, that it was William Cobbett (or maybe John Stuart Mill) who said that a sign that English liberty was no more would be when or if the civil jury were abolished. That is the civil jury, not the criminal jury.

In fact, the civil jury was largely a dead letter by the time of the Second World War, and was used in only a discrete number of case types. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juries_in_England_and_Wales#Civil_juries, a situation which has become even more constricted in recent times. Even defamation cases are now commonly heard in the absence of a civil jury: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juries_in_England_and_Wales#Civil_juries

That was the civil jury. However, it has never been seriously mooted that the criminal jury be abolished. I say “seriously”; there have always, at least in my lifetime, been those against criminal juries. In my view, these critics mostly come into two categories: those (often academic lawyers) who think that ordinary juries are too stupid to think through the facts of cases properly; also, the more extreme “law and order” fanatics, who think that criminal juries acquit too often.

I disagree. While I do agree that (as far as observation can judge) the ordinary jury is certainly not on a high intellectual level, what the jury does, in reality, is import both a sense of justice and a societal imprimatur to the verdict. It is the job of both counsel and judge to explain the case to the jury in a way that will enable the jury, as the arbiters of fact in the case, to come to a just conclusion.

There have been exceptional cases. The Diplock courts in Northern Ireland: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplock_court. A friend of mine, a barrister, saw a Diplock court in operation in Belfast, in the 1980s. He said that it was like a bizarre parody of a normal UK court. The judge was similar, the barristers were similar, but there was no jury, and there were policemen there toting submachineguns! Incidentally, in the case that my friend saw, the accused was acquitted.

Comment: https://www.counselmagazine.co.uk/articles/opinion-juries-in-isolation

It may be that the size of the jury will be reduced: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8272455/Juries-reduced-size-time-WWII.html

Even in the Second World War, jury trials continued, and even in cases of espionage: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/28/britain-nazi-spies-mi5-second-world-war-german-executed, though I have to wonder how the discretion of the jury was maintained. Maybe the jury were “selected” specially, though they did occasionally acquit alleged German (usually Abwehr) agents.

Barristers vary much in their political and social views, but the vast majority still support jury trial in criminal cases.

I am also concerned about the idea of “virtual” trials, where the demeanour and impression of the witnesses cannot be, in my view, properly judged. That becomes all the more important in serious criminal cases

Traditional courts such as the Old Bailey (sketched during the trial of Ian Huntley) are too small to maintain social distancing so could be swapped for large lecture theatres

The blacks think that they are in the ascendant, but of course have no idea (((who))) is pulling their strings.

This “Black Lives Matter” nonsense is basically a puppet show for fools (including, sadly, quite a few white ones). Behind it is part of the ZOG/NWO scenario.

It does not really matter whether you call it The Great Replacement, White Genocide, or anything else. What matters is that white Northern Europeans are being systematically targeted by forces of evil. War has been declared, on all fronts.

Of course, there is a widespread though unfocussed wish for a better society. That wish is being used as a kind of motive power for a number of things, movements, events, which in fact (if they come to fruition) will bring into flower a society of evil, just as the legitimate desire of Russians and others in pre-revolutionary Russia led not to a better society but to one far worse in most respects than had been the case before the Revolution(s).

The present discontent

An opinion poll says that only 6% of UK people want to return to their former (pre-Coronavirus) lives. In a sense, that does not surprise me. While many (including me) disliked the “lockdown”/shutdown for various reasons (civil rights, the damage done to the economy, society and the health of the nation etc), there are many (as I blogged from the start) who were and are enjoying it all.

The more affluent part of society rather liked the “lockdown” because many of such people have pleasant detached houses, with large grounds or gardens, swimming pools, tennis courts, even stables. Many were “working from home”, either doing less work than usual or at least not having to commute for hours, or go to meetings etc. For many, it has been an early “endless Summer”. The Chardonnay and seafood has been delivered by Waitrose or Ocado, the only thing missing is the social interaction (and if those “rules” are broken, who’s to know anyway?).

What about those “furloughed”? The lower-paid, below about £30,000 p.a., are having 80% of their pay covered (up to £2,500 per month), with no need to work and no need to spend on transport to such work. True, that does not cut it for people on higher salaries, but many of those are “working from home”, not furloughed. Others may just have chosen to look upon it as a partly-paid holiday of sorts.

Even the unemployed and/or disabled are better off during “lockdown”. The DWP has suspended its pathetic but cruel regime of “face to face interviews” (with semi-educated jobsworths from DWP itself or from carpetbagging private companies), and no-one (as far as I know) is required to “seek work” by making 100 or 50 (?) pointless applications every week.

Leaving money aside, many people have rather liked the absence of boring old work in itself. Then there is the natural world. I myself have noticed the resurgence of Nature, birds in particular.

In the past, I have blogged about how society should move from the workaholic frenzy of the past 40 years to, not a 1960s “society of leisure”, but to a less harried lifestyle (which I have called the “society of measure”).

What that means is that there must be a rhythm and structure to society. Our society must not be this dystopian, pseudo-“libertarian” finance-capitalist frenzied rush, “open all hours” society; the “eat your sandwiches at your desk” society.

Such a “society of measure” will have at least one day a week reserved, if not for religion and philosophy, at least for watching old (or new) films at home, for playing bowls, or cricket, or polo at home (or at least not professionally). Also, for boating, or lazing, or whatever else is not directly productive.

Yes, that does mean no “B&Q” or other stores open on the designated “day of rest” (and recreation); it also means that the people who work in retail have at least one day off.

It may be worth looking at hours of work. Even if the now usual 40 hours per week were to be retained, that could be changed to 10 hours per day, 4 days per week, or some other configuration.

At present, the Boris-idiot government is saying that it wants to go for, as an earlier government put it, a “dash for growth”. Disastrous. Sunday trading hours to be expanded, gimcrack housing speading like a cancer over the countryside, planning regulation chucked aside, and so on. Completely wrong.

Significant. People have seen the result of the pennywise/poundfoolish spending cuts of the past decade. As a Russian acquaintance of mine put it to me in 1993, referring to Leninism-Stalinism, and as we were sitting in the palatial main foyer of the Ukraina Hotel in Moscow, “Ian, that is an experiment that we do not wish to repeat“…

As in UK and across Europe. More testing means more “new cases”, but few require even basic medical attention; the death rate thankfully receding, because very few people who get the virus need medical help, and even fewer actually die from this.

Governments across the world (some governments) have made the wrong decision(s). The world economy is taking a huge hit, unnecessarily. The UK is facing a really major problem now.

Coronavirus and culling (killing)

The original Daily Telegraph comment piece takes the amorality of present-day “Conservatism”  to a new level, at least in public discourse. Openly supporting the death of millions in order to support the finance-capitalist economy.

This is a logical consequence of what has been happening in society and especially in the Conservative Party over the past decade or so. We saw it in the Dunce Duncan Smith DWP regime (which continues, though without Dunce), in the way in which broadly the poorer part of society has been harried and bullied etc.

This is not even, or not only, political as such. It is a question of morality. It shows to what extent ideas such as those of the “philosopher of selfishness”, the “Russian” Jewess, Ayn Rand, have permeated the West. In the UK, mainly the Conservative Party. Raceless, cultureless, rootless persons such as Sajid Javid, who openly enthuses about Ayn Rand and her pathetic ideas.

I wonder how many of the almost entirely elderly, Conservative-voting persons who read the Telegraph realize that the newspaper and the Conservative Party regard their death as something rather positive?

It also shows to what extent society, UK society, has lost its “moral compass”.

The Jews are always pushing the “Nazis were terrible” line, but here we have mass killing of the mainly British elderly openly praised by the most influential and “serious” newspaper in Britain (though few newspapers are now really serious) and in our supposedly wonderful, supposedly “liberal” society…and only a few dissident pseudo-socialists on Twitter take exception (apart from social-national “extremists” like me, I suppose).

This is the kind of political amorality that has suffused our society over more than a decade. Effectively over two decades. We now have someone posing as “Prime Minister” who has no morality at all (and in fact no real intellectual life, just a dummy education in the classics, injected into him in his youth). A completely amoral Prime Minister, without any ideas worth anything, and without principle. He is also useless in a crisis.

Boris-idiot is advised (as good as controlled) by Dominic Cummings, himself someone of disordered mind, and whose own relatively brief business career, in the 1990s, was marked by complete failure.

The Twitterstorm continues, but few have expressed the points that

  • Twitter is not real life,
  • Twitter is not very influential in reality,
  • Twitter changes nothing.

So here we are, after 500-600 years of post-mediaeval culture:

  • pandemic
  • no medicines work against the epidemic/pandemic
  • antibiotics are not working or are irrelevant to the situation
  • anyone unwell must “self-isolate” in their own home, with or without a red cross painted on the door
  • State (NHS) help is unavailable for most people
  • the only advice is “wash your hands frequently”

Nadine Dorries

Ironically, the junior health minister (PUS), Nadine Dorries [Con, Mid Bedfordshire https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadine_Dorries] has become the first MP to fall victim to the virus (she is recovering in “self-isolation” at time of writing).

Labour has lost touch with the people generally and the people generally have thus cut Labour loose. Labour continues to dominate the Twittersphere, the inner city metro-London space, the world of the NHS and other public services, the loyalty of the blacks and browns. Otherwise? Dead and unlikely to have more than a limited revival.

These are not intangibles such as music, philosophy, the confused ideas of “democracy”, however important those may be, but tangibles: electricity, running water, flush loos and, with those, loo paper.

We laugh at those stockpiling loo paper (so long as we ourselves have “enough”), because we may say “having loo paper will not prevent you getting Coronavirus/Covid-19”, and that is true. It is also true that having a stock of loo paper will not help you much if you do get the virus, because you will use little if any more paper than usual, and the sickness will pass (whatever happens) within a couple of weeks. The average person therefore needs only a stock of perhaps 6-18 rolls. The real point is the psychology.

We feel afraid, to a greater or lesser extent; we feel insecure. The State, NHS, police, whatever, do not offer security, least of all during this virus crisis. We therefore, as a society, turn to basic needs and amplify them. Electricity, running water etc cannot be stockpiled, not by the individual citizen. Loo paper can be stockpiled, though. Ergo, bulk buying…

The bulk buying of loo paper and some other items is an attempt to wrest back control of everyday life from the vortex of uncertainty.

I might add that, so far, the bulk buying has not stopped. I was at Waitrose late yesterday (they shut at 2000 hours here). No hand gel on sale, other cleaning items for the home largely sold out. The entire stock of loo paper sold out, not a roll left (and a cashier with whom I chatted told me that when she started her shift hours before, the stock had already gone…). The cheaper own-brand pasta also sold out (except for peculiarly-shaped pasta). Also, tinned tomato and, to a lesser extent, tinned sweetcorn.

There were, however, fewer actual shoppers than usual.

I would not want to add to the semi-panic, but I have discovered that the loo paper used in the UK comes, most of it, from overseas: 1.1 million tonnes out of 1.3 million. That’s the raw material. So it is not beyond reason to think that there might be a shortage if supply lines are disrupted.

However, we know, as far as Coronavirus is concerned, that there is a wave which rises and eventually falls. Weeks, maybe a few months at most, certainly not years. The most loo paper that any normal individual needs to have, based on 90 days, would therefore be somewhere around (arguably) 30 rolls. Maybe even as little as 20 rolls. So even a family of 4 people would need no more than (between) 80-120 rolls at absolute maximum. For 3 months’ supply. That must put the matter into perspective from the purely logical point of view.

The vicious defendants are merely described in the Daily Mirror as “from Lincoln”. No mention of the fact that they are Roma gypsies from Romania, as is obvious to any thinking person from their appearance and names. If they cannot be simply disposed of, they should at least be deported (and preferably sterilized first).

People often wonder why the public accepts “fake news”. Part of that is because the Zionist-influenced msm so often conceals real news.

Budget

The spending plans set out by Rishi Sunak today should have been put in place, speaking in overall terms, in 2010, 2011, 2012. Other countries, including USA and Germany, and France (among many others) did that to counteract the crazed meltdown of the “banking system” (i.e. the last finance-capitalism crisis) in 2007-2008.

Those countries did much better economically than the UK in the past decade, and they have not had to endure the social miseries caused directly by the sort of policies put in place by George Osborne, that pathetic little part-Jew sadist. Spending cuts, “austerity” (for half of the population) etc.

Look at Germany at the end of the Great Depression. Six million unemployed, the economy stagnant etc. The National Socialist government from 1933 got everything moving, and crucially started that happening by acts of political will. New projects were part of it, but the will to move forward energized everything. The will stemmed from one man, Adolf Hitler. He transmitted the will to his immediate followers and to the NSDAP, which then moved the whole country forward. Yes, part of the improvement was the removal of exploitation by Jews (though Jews still owned vast parts of the German economy for years after that, right up to 1939 in some cases), but the real cause of Germany’s uplift was the programme put in place to do things.

[Note. In relation to the second part of the notice immediately above: in the USA, Henry Ford introduced the 40-hour week in 1926, though it had become the norm in the American newspaper printing industry even before WW1. Henry Ford is the only American whose name is mentioned in Mein Kampf. In Europe, there were attempts to legislate for an 8-hour day in various places, though in some cases these were not fully-implemented: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-hour_day.]

It seems incredible today, what Germany was able to achieve in its six short years of uneasy peace from 1933 to 1939. No wonder that people flocked from all over the world to see the new Germany arise.

Final word for today

I think that it is absolutely legitimate to be angry at China for repeatedly unleashing dangerous viruses on the rest of the world mainly because of the generally disgusting Chinese attitude to animals, because of the fact that the Chinese in China will use and eat virtually anything, and often keep and use animals in disgusting ways.

There is much to admire in both the ancient Chinese culture and the contemporary Chinese capabilities, but political correctness and moral cowardice must not stop us from inflicting on China justified criticism, though of course no individual Chinese (especially in Europe) should be held accountable.

Dominic Cummings, A Government of Dystopia, and Lunacy Posing As Genius

Dominic Cummings

Dominic Cummings is in the news again.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jan/02/dominic-cummings-calls-for-weirdos-and-misfits-for-no-10-jobs

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-50978329

https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/staggers/2020/01/dominic-cummings-has-serious-ideas-im-not-sure-hes-serious-about-them

I blogged about him 5 months ago:

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2019/08/10/les-eminences-grises-of-dystopia/

Someone is at least on the right track…

Some tweets seen…

Good grief! If this [see below] really is a snapshot of the mind of Dominic Cummings, then the government really is in the hands not only of idiots (eg Boris-idiot, Priti Patel etc) but of lunatics.

It also reminds us that lunacy is not really so hard to distinguish from genius, in most cases.

[Update, 23 January 2020: the full lunacy of Cummings’ blog post, some of which was in the deleted tweet above, seems to have been expunged from the Internet, though maybe one of his “weirdos and misfits” would be able to find it]

The above (apparently from a blog penned by Cummings) is an inward-gazing stream of consciousness (though purporting to be to the point) worthy of someone whose residential address ends with the word “Hospital”, or similar.

What makes it alarming is that Cummings is not just a stray “Conservative” (and the word seems ever-less useful as a descriptor) who is on the periphery of power (in the way that the Monday Club or the Bow Group used to be), but someone right at the centre of what could be (perhaps inaccurately) called the Johnson Project. Indeed, “Cummings Project” might be more accurate. Boris Johnson himself has few ideas beyond schoolboy fantasies such as building bridges from Scotland to Ireland, creating artificial islands with Metropolis airports on them etc.

There was talk before the recent General Election that in Cabinet (effectively in Cabinet; I suppose technically, Cabinet committee), Cummings actually overruled the Prime Minister several times. Not just spoke over him, but overruled him on decisions! Now, OK, the person posing as Prime Minister is Boris-idiot, a bad joke PM who is a proven serial —indeed constant— liar, incompetent and fantasist, but there is still such a thing as respect for the office itself…

Dominic Cummings seems to me (admittedly only from what I have read…I have never met him or anyone who has met him) to be like a person who is somewhere between a guest and a gatecrasher at a dinner party, someone who has no idea how to behave and who has no respect for the hosts, the guests, the staff or the event.

Is there anything correct about his views re. government and civil service? Yes, the gene pool is shallow or narrow; in politics now even more so than in the administration proper (Civil Service), but the answer to that is to carefully reform recruitment and training, as well as overall structure, not to let off hand grenades all over Westminster.

I think that we have to remind ourselves that governing the UK is not some kind of pathetic country house weekend game in the drawing room or Hall. This impacts on real people, in their millions, all over this country. It is not a matter of scribbling some clever little half-baked idea that can be run up the flagpole at the Oxford Union or (taking on board the Cummings dislike of Oxbridge) a Spectator drinks party.

This made me laugh, though!

I have to say that I agree with the tweeter below:

It may seem lazy to say “it is easier to destroy than create”, but the thing about truisms is that they contain truth. The machinery of administration and government in the UK was created over centuries, and particularly in the century or so since the mid-Victorian era. Once you tear it to pieces, you may find that groups of supposedly terribly clever little people, weirdos and misfits, sitting in groups around Whitehall, cannot in fact replace what presently exists.

Britain today has already suffered a number of shocks to its postwar (post-1945) stability: Thatcherism, mass immigration (accelerated since 1997), Blair-Brown “reforms”, the financial crisis of 2008, the fake “austerity” of the evil 2010-2019 “Conservative” governments (particularly the half-baked idiocies of Dunce Duncan Smith and his underlings). Now this.

Dominic Cummings is a History graduate, for what that is now worth. He will know, I presume, what happens to societies when everything that underpins their stability is knocked away. I presume that he also knows that revolutions usually consume their own children…

New Year Honours— A Bloody Joke

BekVduHIIAAj-ug

[I wrote this for my Diary Blog, but it deserves its own article]

New Year “Honours”

This has of course been a farce for a very long time. At least in the mediaeval period, there was no hypocrisy involved. You were a crony of the King, or helped him out in battle or otherwise, you got a title, and maybe the lands (and so, income) with which to support your new-found estate (status).

Later, absurdities such as the creation of the “baronet” class, the earliest example of the “sale of honours”, went alongside honours sometimes given for real achievement in the arts, sciences and commerce.

There were scandals along the way. The sale of honours under Lloyd George was egregious not in quality (it happened before, it still happens in 2019) but in quantity. Few “average citizens” realize that hardly any of the still extant hereditary titles predate 1900. And that is before we even consider the “life peers”, which rival the baronetage in risibility.

A woman starts a bra company. Turns out that it is a house of cards that eventually collapses, but not before Michelle Mone is “elevated” to the House of Lords as a “baroness”, having convinced idiotic David Cameron-Levita that she is a great “role-model”. A West Indian woman’s son is killed by some white ruffians in a scuffle at a South-East London bus stop. What?! Oh my God! Make her a “baroness” too! And bung her family a hundred grand at the same time.

The “House of Lords” was badly “reformed” by Blair; a poorly-thought-out reform, like so much of his legislation. It is time to get rid of it.

As to the new honours list: I have not read it in detail but, for one thing, is it not incredible that Iain Dunce Duncan Smith, a proven liar and fraudster, should be “knighted”? His record:

  • A part-Japanese, who attended a “secondary modern” State school near Birmingham and then went on to a substandard merchant navy school on Anglesey, later fraudulently inventing a university background (was found out, but sadly too late);
  • Poses as a kind of “upper class” Englishman by reason of having been a Scots Guards officer (never got beyond Lieutenant in 6 years, and was considered a deadhead even in Guards circles);
  • Married a wealthy wife but still, for a while, fraudulently claimed State benefits;
  • Has always sponged off his father-in-law, even —and to this day— living for free in a house on the latter’s estate in Swanbourne, Buckinghamshire;
  • Has wasted literally billions of State funds in trying to make his misconceived “welfare” “reforms” work, while subjecting the sick, disabled, unemployed etc to a regime characterized by an Oriental cruelty and vindictiveness;
  • Has, in effect, via his policies, killed tens of thousands of people;
  • Fraudulently claimed hundreds of thousands of pounds on his MP expenses for “employing” his wife; in fact she never did any work at all; Dunce was, however, never tried for what was a plain fraud on public monies;
  • Claimed that he could easily live on a few pounds a day if he had to; meanwhile, he claimed on his MP expenses for underwear and also for a £39 breakfast at the Waldorf in London (among a huge number of other doubtful claims);
  • Has shown himself incapable of properly holding high office;
  • Time and again proven to be a liar;
  • Conservative Friends of Israel member…

Dunce is the most obviously unmeritorious recipient of an honour this time, but what about the degenerate singer-songwriter, Elton John? I should like to have him removed from the airwaves and from sight. There again, a black woman has apparently been given a minor honour for baking cakes. Also, there is the  now-usual plethora of sports people etc. Win a cricket match or rugby game on the other side of the world? Knighthood. Bloody joke.

At the other end, there are the people who get honours for years of “service” (work). OK, and many may be meritorious; many may not be. I was slightly acquainted once with a woman who, 20+ years later (2006 or 2007), got an honour (MBE, I think) “for fostering relations with Russia”. From what I heard on good authority, mainly carnal ones…

I think that this whole business needs a reboot, especially the higher honours, the “peerages”, “knighthoods” etc.

Diary Blog, 21 December 2019

I start today’s diary blog with some music:

Now we move to the affairs of the day…

Mark Field

For myself, though I had little time for Mark Field in general, I found the film of his encounter with the protesting lady rather funny. Her smug, entitled, “I’m going to do this; no-one can stop me and my companions” became (after brief resistance) “oh…” as she was collared and frogmarched out. Hilarious. For those who have not seen the footage:

DWP and suicides caused by “welfare” “reform:

Iain Dunce Duncan Smith and the Jew “lord” Freud, David Gauke, Esther McVey etc are guilty, morally (and in fact actually) of causing the deaths of thousands of victims, including 600+ suicides. They have to be brought to account one way or another.

Alison Chabloz

A take-off of the early 1970s TV series, The Persuaders, by persecuted singer-songwriter Alison Chabloz, starring imprisoned German dissident Ursula Haverbeck and the late Professor Faurisson:

I wonder how many people remember The Persuaders? The over-50s mainly, I suppose. People often say how good British TV used to be, but that is rather a rose-tinted view. There was plenty of rubbish too (such as, indeed, The Persuaders). Redeemed a little by the music of John Barry (and by that lady in the purple bikini!).

Signs of the times

I wrote a piece quite a while ago, in fact a whole year ago, about how TV ads and the so-called “soaps” are the chief outlets of mass propaganda. Of course they are! They are the most popular mass entertainment. Therefore, the most packed with System propaganda. So much so that some of the “soaps” actually have a message at the end telling viewers that if they have any problem similar to the “issues” raised, to call an official helpline!

https://ianrmillard.wordpress.com/2018/12/10/tv-ads-and-soaps-are-the-propaganda-preferred-by-the-system-in-the-uk/

The propaganda effort has been stepped up this Christmas. The propagandists embedded in ad companies, TV companies etc have created a hybrid televisual “Christmas”, incorporating most of the traditional themes (though Christianity itself takes an ever-less prominent place), but mixing the traditional with key elements of the Coudenhove-Kalergi Plan. So we now see all the LGBT (etc) stuff very prominent, the celebrating families on TV ads are almost without exception mixed-race, or you see a blonde mother with what Boris Johnson, I suppose, would call a “piccaninny” child.

In fact, even ads not specifically “Christmas” now have the above elements. Renault (if I recall aright) has recently had an ad showing two little girls who are friends; later, as young adults, they start a lesbian relationship (strongly implied; in fact it is pretty express). Are people so naive that they do not discern the aims and forces behind this sort of thing? Sadly, that may indeed be the case in the UK.

The ultimate aim is to destroy the racial and cultural basis of society, both in the UK and also in other basically white Northern European states and areas.

“79% of British think that the UK is going in the wrong direction” [ipsos poll]

Commenting on the findings, [ipsos] said: “Levels of pessimism about Britain’s national direction continue to be extremely high when compared to other countries.

“In fact, since the series started in May 2011, levels of pessimism have never been higher in Britain than they are now. The current political turmoil and Brexit impasse are likely to be significant contributing factors to the negative mood but our data shows that other factors are at play too.

“Issues around crime, healthcare and poverty continue to worry Britons but it is also noticeable that concern about Climate Change is at record levels.

“Hostile press coverage aimed at the Labour Party at the 2019 election was more than double the intensity found during 2017’s poll, according to a study of the two campaigns” [The Independent]

Researchers at Loughborough University, who have been tracking political news coverage, also found that British newspapers were half as critical of the Conservative Party in this month’s election as they were in the one two years ago” [The Independent]

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/uk-election-press-media-conservative-tory-labour-criticism-bias-a9255551.html

Quelle surprise…

CSrYbsNU8AATLhJ

Tracking newspaper coverage over five weeks of the 2019 election, the academics found that the intensity of hostile coverage of opposition parties peaked in the final days of the campaign. By contrast, coverage weighted by circulation was mostly positive about the Conservative Party, with coverage of Boris Johnson’s party improving in the final week.”

…and that’s before we even examine the role of the (((BBC))), (((Sky News))), (((ITV News))) etc in this rigged and unfair General Election of 2019.

DNe0-uXXcAAlTCh

Because the largest newspapers were more friendly to the Conservatives, when weighted by circulation, the final week of the 2019 election gave the Tories a positive score of 30.17 while Labour’s was minus 96.66 – a vast gulf in treatment.”

“All opposition parties were portrayed negatively, with only the ruling Tories portrayed in a positive light.” [The Independent]

Britain 2019 (and now, 2020 as well…)

A man waiting for triple bypass heart surgery has been declared fit to work by the Department of Work and Pensions – surviving on just £80 a week.

Konrad Zastawny, 55, from Sheffield, has coronary artery disease which leaves him short of breath on some days and unable to move on others.

Doctors have told him he is unfit to work until he has had the six hour operation – scheduled for next month – which will see surgeons move blood vessels from elsewhere in his body to his five blocked arteries.

However, the job centre said he does not qualify for disability support.” [Daily Mirror]

The two things that won the election for the Conservatives will be gone within months – Jeremy Corbyn and Brexit [John Rentoul, in The Independent]

https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/boris-election-results-latest-labour-after-corbyn-brexit-a9256206.html

Rentoul left out the most important “winning factor” that the Conservative Party had in the recent contest, meaning voters aged over 70, almost all of whom voted, and voted Conservative. Many will not be there next time, while many new voters will be eligible and may vote. As I have blogged previously, only a quite small minority of voters under 40 vote Con and the Conservative Party cannot hope that the upcoming voters of 70+ years old will be another 90%-Conservative bloc.
